    Seventh heaven: Tigers roar into top four with Giant victory

    RICHMOND star Monique Conti has put in another dazzling display to help her side surge into the AFLW top four with a 43-point hammering of Greater Western Sydney.

    Conti shone in wet and windy conditions, kicking three goals from a game-high 23 disposals as the Tigers posted a 9.4 (58) to 2.3 (15) victory in Mildura.

    The margin gave Richmond a massive percentage boost that lifted it above Collingwood into fourth spot with one round left to play.

    The Tigers and Giants clash in round nine of the 2022 NAB AFL Women's Competition

    It was the Tigers' seventh straight win, extending their club-record streak after they managed a total of six victories in their previous three seasons in the competition.

    Conti was a class above, calm in traffic and busy around contests, and laid a game-high eight tackles.

    TIGERS v GIANTS Full match coverage and stats

    The 22-year-old midfielder had plenty of assistance from capable teammates, with Grace Egan (19 disposals, one goal) and Jess Hosking (18, one) both influential.

    Gabrielle Seymour (16 disposals) was busy and Stella Reid kicked two goals, while defender Bec Miller made a successful return after five weeks out with a hamstring injury.

    The Tigers made use of a stiff breeze to build a 26-point lead by quarter-time on the back of a 13-0 differential in forward entries.

    The Giants only trimmed margin by eight points in the second term and Richmond made them pay in the third, with two Conti goals putting the result beyond doubt.

    Neither side managed to score into the wind until the final term, when Brennan kicked a behind before setting up a goal for local star Courtney Wakefield.

    Alyce Parker (18 diposals, one goal) was the Giants' best, while captain Alicia Eva (13) battled away despite requiring treatment on a right foot injury early in the match.

    Tigers' finals spot all but locked in
    Richmond has one hand on a finals berth with just one round remaining in the home and away season. Richmond has never made finals before in its four AFLW seasons, and its improvement this season is stratospheric. After losing the first two rounds of the season, Richmond has found a new gear and won seven games on the bounce - including an upset win over ladder-leading Brisbane. 

    Up next
    The Tigers finish their season off against the red-hot North Melbourne on Sunday, while the Giants take on Gold Coast at home later that day.
